Every other year, approximately 350 fourth and fifth grade students in the state of Nebraska are nominated by their classroom teacher to participate in the Nebraska All-State Children’s Choir, sponsored by the Nebraska Music Educators Association. Selection as a member of this group is one of the highest musical honors attainable in Nebraska.
Judy Welch, Children’s Choir coordinator, for the Nebraska Music Educators Association, is pleased to announce that Katelyn Babula and Briana Capek were among the 350 students selected to be a part of the 2013 All-State Children’s Chorus.
